A very dignified production with some tremendously stimulating ideas that, yes, were not entirely well exposed in the movie that came to theaters two decades ago. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- In the tradition of the old Westerns and Mel Gibson's Road Warrior flicks, this film provides good escapist fun. Full Review

...The Existential Raft Drama....Exciting and even funny...

Costner... is totally humorless and as dreary as the landscape he travels. And the uninspired and often inane dialogue in Peter Rader and David Twohy's script doesn't help. Full Review

Rating: 6/10 -- It's borderline halfway decent. For the first 25 minutes or so, it's even actually good, in its derivative way. Full Review

Product Description:

In a flooded future Earth, people cling to man-made floating islands for survival. When a tyrannical madman driving a supertanker over the world in search of "dry land" invades one of these islands a mysterious wanderer named the "Mariner" rescues a woman and her adopted daughter from the slaughter and they embark on a quest that could save mankind. Academy Award Nomination: Best Sound.

Plot Synopsis:

The future has arrived, and it brings a world composed entirely of water, due to the melting of the polar ice caps. In this desperate society one must distill one's own urine for drinking water, and land is only a myth people dream of. Roaming the high seas is the Mariner, a surly, selfish man/fish mutant with no name. But his loner existence changes when a woman named Helen and an orphaned girl named Enola save his life, and the Mariner reluctantly agrees to take them along with him. At first the Mariner has a rocky relationship with his two passengers; then he realizes that the tattoo on Enola's back is a map leading to the never-seen "Dryland". But as the trio struggles to decipher the map, they must also try to escape a band of filthy, reckless thugs known as "Smokers", led by the maniacal, one-eyed Deacon. Then the Smokers kidnap Enola, turning the Mariner into a one-man killing machine desperate to rescue his human map.
And only if he succeeds will they ever know the feel of solid ground beneath their feet.
